Studies were carried out to determine the antioxidant evaluation of Moringa oleiferain micewith Plasmodium bergheimalaria . Twenty-five albino mice ( Musmusculus ) induced intraperitoneally with chloroquine sensitive Plasmodium bergheistrain were divided into 5 groups and treated at three concentrations ranging from 400, 200. Positive control was set up with chloroquinediphosphate while negative control was set up with olive oil. The mice models were treated for 72 h. For the aqueous extract, a parasite inhibition rate of 20% was observed at concentration 200 ml/kg and 25% at concentration 400 ml/kg in day 3 after treatment. A 100% inhibition rate was observed for mice treated with 25 mg/kg of standard chloroquinediphosphate after day 3 of treatment while parasitaemia increased from 48 on day 0 to 86 after day 3 for mice treated with olive oil. Superoxide dismutase shows an increase in the mice administered with 200mg/kg body weight of Moringa oleifera and a decrease in other groups compared with the control group. Melondialdehyde also shows an increase in the mice administered with 200mg/kg body weight of Moringa oleifera and a decrease in other groups compared with the control group. Glutathione peroxide and reduced glutathione decreased in all the groups except for the chloroquine treated group compared with the control group. Group 6 (negative control) showed a non-significant difference (p>0.05) in serum urea compared to group E (positive control) and other groups. Alanine aminotransferase (ALT) also, significantly increased (p<0.05) in group E (positive control) and group B (200mg/kg body weight of the extract when compared to group 6 (negative control). Group 6 (negative control) showed no significant difference (p>0.05) in aspartate aminotransferase (AST) compared to group E (positive control) and other groups. Alkaline phosphatase (ALP) activity of mice significantly increased (p<0.05) in group E (positive control) and group A (400mg/kg body weight of the extract) compared to group 6 (negative control) and other groups.
